Dear Parents

At the end of our first full week back in school, I still marvel at the resilience shown by the pupils and the determined start they have made to the term.  Whilst we continue to work at keeping everyone safe, I think the children are all appreciating the return to some kind of normality.  Some have rediscovered their love of school; long may this continue!

Open Morning: Saturday 26 September

Please continue to promote our Open Morning.  Sharing (rather than merely liking) our article on Facebook ready helps.  Alternatively, please encourage family and friends to contact Mrs Bellerby on the school number.

Promotional Video

We are aware that some families may not wish to attend our Open Morning in person.  Therefore, we have produced a video which we feel reflects the many positive aspects of a Red House education.  I hope you have had the opportunity to view it; it can be found here.  Once again, sharing it with friends and family would be wonderful too.  Thank you to those who have already left such lovely comments after watching the video.

Warm Coats

Please encourage the children to bring a coat to school (it should be a dark colour).  They are spending as much time as possible outdoors.

Children feeling Unwell 

Thank you to those parents who have been in touch to discuss their son/daughter feeling unwell; it is always best to err on the side of caution.  Perhaps it’s also an opportune moment to remind you of the COVD-19 symptoms and the school’s approach:

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

• a high temperature (hot to touch on your chest or back)

• a new, continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours). If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual.

• a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Children who display any of these symptoms, or who are in a household when anyone displays any of these symptoms, must not come into school. Children who display symptoms whilst in school will be taken to an area away from the other children and their parents will be called. If you are in any doubt, please do not send your child into school and call us to discuss the matter.

Many thanks for your continued support during our transition back to school.  We are proud of the children and I’m honoured to be leading a dedicated team which is facilitating this transition.  Here’s hoping next week is another successful week too!

With best wishes
